PCB Horror Stories you can avoid with San Francisco Circuits

Here are some PCB horror stories that gave us the chills:

PCB horror stories

Horror Story 1

An engineer came to us and said that they trusted someone else with their crucial project. The net list was supplied with the data but was not compared to the gerbers. They were "Shocked" when the boards had a power to ground short.

Horror Story 2

Our customer had to attend a trade show to present their new design. They had 1 week to get the board done. They ordered the boards on a 3 day turn but didn't receive the boards until after the trade show! What's just as bad, the supplier never responded when they asked for status.
